PCGS - Coinage issues from 1889 produced by the Kwangtung (Canton) Mint in China posed many issues that needed to be addressed, including changes to the weight and denomination standards, as well as the design now being updated to reflect the desires of the government in Peking (Beijing) so that no English would be on the obverse of the coin. With these matters resolved, the task of mass-producing coinage began. The Kwangtung Mint, the largest mint in the world in the 1890, set out upon the task of producing a domestic uniform currency in the form of coinage to subdue and replace the circulating foreign coinage in China.

The coins produced and issued by Kwangtung were undated under the reign of Emperor Guangxu. Being that his reign ended in November 1908 and the coins during his helm were first produced in 1890, this is the date range associated with the common design that carries his name. Eduard Kann was able to procure mint records for production between 1890 and 1901 breaking down the production of coinage at the Kwangtung Mint. From these records that Kann published in his catalog, one can see for these 11 years the mint recorded such data that it produced 393,189,895 silver coins. This record isn't complete, as production of the coins continued until 1908 - another six years.
